I am looking for some valid points to choose between Oracle Vs SQL Server to handle around 5-6 Terabytes of data. This data will get accumulated over a period of 8 Months. Any data older then 8 months is purged out of the database.
I am considering Oracle 11G Standard Edition and SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition.
I am not looking for ease of development, I am purely looking in terms of handling the huge data and still be able to provide good performance. Apart from performance if there is any parameter which makes any difference then please highlight.
I know price wise there is a lot of difference but that is not a factor if the performance difference is a lot.
I hope to get non-biased answers and no religious war.
